2018 Tropical cyclone summary

From: Environment and Climate Change Canada


The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season generally had minimal impact on Canadian territory. The Canadian Hurricane Centre (CHC) tracked two storms, which entered the Canadian response zone, and the CHC issued a total of 23 statements.

  • Post-Tropical Storm Beryl: had little impact on Canada as it weakened enough prior to entering Canadian marine areas that winds stayed below gale-force. In addition, tropical moisture directly related to Beryl didn’t affect southeastern Newfoundland. Therefore, impacts to Canadian territory from Beryl were minimal.
  • Post-Tropical Storm Chris: had some impact on the offshore marine areas and brought wind and rain over southeastern Newfoundland. It caused some impact to the marine areas southeast of Nova Scotia and south of Newfoundland. Hurricane-force and storm-force winds were forecast over portions of the offshore waters. Strong winds and large waves were measured by offshore buoys south of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. In addition, heavy rain and strong winds affected southeastern Newfoundland.
